The rapidly-growing Minneapolis suburb or Champlin, Minnesota sits along the Mississippi River. During the late 1600s, Champlin is the place where Father Louis Hennepin is said to have crossed the Mississippi River. In honor of that historic event, the city celebrates every June with the Father Hennepin Festival. A lively 3-day event featuring music, a craft show, carnival rides, and a parade, this celebration attracts visitors from all over the area. Other annual events include a Kiddie Carnival, City Garage Sale, and Dinner & a Movie.
With over 30 parks, Champlin is a great place for outdoor adventures. Numerous ball fields, play areas, trails, skating rinks, picnic areas, and basketball courts make it easy to get outside. The Elm Creek Park Reserve has snow mobile trails, cross-country ski trails, a swimming lake, camping, and horseback riding.
Just 15 minutes from Minneapolis, it is easy to commute into the metro area for work, cultural events, museums, shows, and restaurants.
